I have a problem: I hate the end of August. Growing up, I would be filled with dread as the weeks passed in August. I tried to fake it and get into new school supplies and a new wardrobe, but in the end, no shiny folders or awesome sneakers could quell the anxiety inside of me for the first day of school. As years passed, I thought I would grow out of being grumpy at the end of August, but to this day I still get down this time of year even though I no longer attend school. This got me thinking, perhaps if I had attended some of the schools I have read about in teen literature—those that have a supernatural twist—then maybe I would have liked back to school time just a little bit more… and maybe I would have even looked forward to starting a new school year.
Beneath the Sugar Sky , the third novella in Seanan McGuire's excellent Wayward Children series, is out this week, giving me the perfect opportunity to write about one of my favorite fantasy subgenres: the magical boarding school story. Here are nine fantasy books that use the magical boarding school setting to help tell their story Check out more of Cai's work for the Wayward Children series over at Tor. The novellas of Wayward Children , the series from Seanan McGuire, are examples of smart, affecting fantasy stories that both tells its own story and uses that story to comment on the genre in clever, subversive ways. Narnia's Pevensies or Wonderland's Alice would be great candidates, for example. When children start to turn up murdered, the children have a mystery to solve.
